History & Background (Dossier)[edit]

Remarks: An independent world just beyond the boundaries of the Carrillian Assembly, Yarhfahl has long been considered more important for its position in space than for any intrinsic value of the world itself. Since the Assembly colonization of nearby Ildrissar (Reaver's Deep 2326), Yarhfahl has been a necessary staging point for commercial traffic between the Assembly and the new colony, and enjoyed a small spurt of economic growth as a result of this traffic. Locally, however, there was and is little to attract interest to Yarhfahl itself. Modest fishing and pelagic maricultural industries support the majority of the 19 million people inhabiting the world.

With the recent outbreak of rebellion on Ildrissar, Yarhfahl has assumed an even greater strategic importance. One of the first responses of the Assembly was to orbit a large fleet at Yarhfahl, setting the world up as a staging area for operations against the Ildrissaran rebels. Local shipping was seized and pressed into service and the Yarhfahlan government forced to cooperate in various 'protective measures', which virtually eliminated the world as an independent entity. Without a local army or navy of its own, Yarhfahl has been unable to offer significant resistance.

Agents of the Ildrissaran rebels have been attempting to stir up trouble on Yarhfahl and a limited resistance movement has formed to begin striking back at the Assembly.
